    "My daughter has completed her Kindergarten year at Prescott. Like many of you reading this, I am a neighborhood parent that was confused by the mixed reviews on this site. I also had hesitations sending my child to a CPS school that isn't regarded as "top tier". A visit to the school hosted by one of the parent groups and subsequent meetings with the teachers and staff convinced us to give the school a chance. As my daughter's first year winds down, we are thrilled with her progress, especially her newly found enthusiasm for reading. The teachers are great, the staff is engaged, parents are active and everyone seems to love the school. I can honestly say that I have not heard any complaints from any fellow parents regarding the teachers or administration. If there are issues, they don't show where it counts - with the teachers and the students. I would encourage any parent considering Prescott to visit the school and meet with the staff. I believe you'll find a great school that's on the verge of becoming "top tier"."

    "My child has attended this school for 3years and states that the teacher yells at the students! I also don't believe that they enforce the "No Bully" policy as well as I have seen other schools enforce it. Instead of coming up with a positive plan that includes positive reinforced they choose to punish. We will be transferred out this year to a new school. #PositiveHopes#"

    "This school likes to promote itself but what it should really be promoting is student growth. There are only a couple of teachers here who really seem to get that and the rest are woefully unprepared to handle typical classroom behavior. Bullying, suspensions, and letters to student files seem to happen an awful lot at this school. Are there really that many tough kids at such a small school? Maybe the problem is in the way the administration and inexperienced teachers are handling things? You would hope that with all these awards and "board certified" teachers they'd be better equipped to actually GUIDE and TEACH. After all, they are all just kids."

    "It was sad that while my girls went to school here (all straight-A students) they did not receive much in the way of positive feedback. My 6th grader received detention for failing to do one-half a page of a 40-page winter break homework packet (only one student in the class had completed this section) and she spent the rest of the year terrified that she wo ld forgot something. They transferred to another school last year and are much happier with the mutual respect of the teaching staff. They were all behind in math with their peers, but are getting up to speed. If you have another option, I would recommend you take it."

    "Prescott is a great school with great teachers. While we have since moved from the area, Prescott more than prepared our children for their present schools on the North Shore."
